New Vice Principal at The Sheffield College

The Sheffield College has appointed a new Vice Principal for Higher Technical Skills and Academic Studies.

Helen Molton joined the College in September 2021. Her remit involves the strategic oversight of higher technical skills provision, university level qualifications, access to higher education diplomas and A Levels at The Sheffield Sixth Form.

Prior to joining the College, Helen held senior positions in a range of higher and further education institutions including the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education, the University of Hull, Bishop Burton College and Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education.

Helen said: “The College is well placed to deliver higher technical skills that enable our students to go further in their careers and support the economy. It’s exciting to lead the implementation of that strategy. I am delighted to have joined the College at such an exciting time.”

Angela Foulkes, Chief Executive and Principal, The Sheffield College, added: “It’s great to welcome Helen to the College. She joins at a crucial time when there is growing recognition of the importance of higher technical education and training to support a skills-led pandemic economic recovery.”

The Sheffield College offers a broad curriculum including apprenticeships, vocational diplomas, A Levels, access courses, and foundation and honours degrees.
